Banana Crumb Muffins

We like muffins in this house. And banana bread. So when my 29 year old husband started acting like a 4 year old, whining about banana bread, and how would really like some, I gave in. Because I am a super fabulous wife like that. And um, the bananas were getting super ripe.

I came across this recipe on and it is good. As in it made 11 muffins, made them at 7pm and they were gone by 7 am. That good. I mean, if the bananas are starting to look like somebody kicked their arses, then smash em up.

"A basic banana muffin is made extraordinary with a cinnamon-and-brown-sugar streusel topping."
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
